    You know what's funny about that is that some store websites (B&H I think, for instance) list it as 120mm. I see it all over the place like that. Oh well, I guess people think it's similar to 35mm instead of the film code like 135.
    Just another example of why we should always question "conventional wisdom"

    Perhaps it's just my imagination, or the fact that the film is wider, but I have always gotten the impression the 120 had a thinner film base than 135.

    It does, because it's used differently. 35mm film has the perforations, it's on a thick base to keep from tearing out the perforations. 120 film often needs to go through sharp bends in the camera, so it's on a thin base. There isn't a huge difference though for example Ilford coats FP4 35mm on a .125mm base and 120 on a .110m base, so a difference of .015mm, that's a pretty small amount, when you consider that .015mm is less then 0.0006 inches.

    Foma use a blueish film base for this film, so it will not help to fix or wash it longer.
